Writer’s Voice with Francesca Rheannon

Today we remember the great civil rights leader Bob Moses. He died July 24 at the age of 86. Back in 2010, we interviewed him about his Algebra Project to bring math education to low-income students and students of color. His book is Quality Education As A Constitutional Right.

We also air part of our interview with Bruce Watson about his book, Freedom Summer: The Savage Season That Made Mississippi Burn and Made America a Democracy. He talks about Bob Moses’ work with that project.

Finally, another remembrance: poet Philip Schultz reads his elegy for his friend and carpenter, Santos, and tells us about his life.

North Fork Works with Hazel Kahan

This month Hazel Kahan’s guest on North Fork Works is scientist and Southold resident Steve Schott, who is a Marine Botany/Habitat Restoration Educator at Cornell Cooperative Extension, bringing us his special expertise in sugar kelp and eelgrass, two species of crucial significance for the health of Long Island’s waters, including the Long Island Sound.  He talks about the work he is doing at Cornell to protect and restore our waters, the emerging kelp industry, legislation awaiting Gov. Cuomo’s signature and the responsibilities that come with managing the ecology of our estuarine habitats.
